Posted 17 days ago

To help us achieve our big, audacious goals to transform the plant-based and alternative protein sector we’re on the hunt for a Talent Acquisition Specialist.  We’re growing fast, and this role provides an exciting opportunity to spearhead our talent acquisition efforts as we set out to grow our headcount over the next 12 months.

You will

  • Manage the full end-to-end recruitment process for a range of positions from application through to offer stage.
  • Collaborate with hiring managers to create clear and effective job descriptions and ads.
  • Manage all job postings, including creative and proactive sourcing of candidates across various channels.
  • Build our talent pipeline by identifying the best pools of talent, connecting with relevant communities, proactive reach outs and attending events / meetups.
  • Deliver world class people experiences to our candidates and hiring managers.
  • Ensure people related compliance across our global team.
  • Administer our Applicant Tracking System Greenhouse, ensuring our hiring managers and team members are set up for success
  • Bring a flexible mindset – we’re a startup and we need everyone to roll up their sleeves.
  • Adopt a continuous improvement mindset by continually looking for ways to improve what we do across employer branding, team culture, event & job board strategies and candidate communications.
  • Support the People and Culture team to develop and execute on people related projects and initiatives.

You have:

  • 3-5 years experience in a recruitment or talent acquisition role preferably in a startup or high growth environment.
  • Sound knowledge of Australian employment law and regulations.
  • Proven track record of scaling recruitment processes in a high-growth environment
  • Passion for developing and delivering world class candidate experience
  • You are passionate about employer brand and are a natural born story teller.
  • Experience in developing relationships, including a strong ability to influence and advise stakeholders and guide candidates through a process.
  • Experience with Applicant Tracking Systems (we use Greenhouse).
  • End-to-end recruitment experience, along with creative proactive sourcing skills to identify and engage with top talent.
  • Experience headhunting, sourcing and building talent pipelines.
  • Demonstrated coaching, influencing, and stakeholder management capabilities.
  • You want to play a part in the plant-based and alternative protein movement and are interested in the startup ecosystem.
  • Continuous improvement mindset, always striving to do better.

It would be great, but not essential, if you also had:

  • Experience hiring at a rapidly growing startup but not essential.
  • Experience working with USA based employees.
  • Experience recruiting technical roles (e.g. scientific).
  • Broader people and culture experience beyond talent acquisition to flex to evolving company needs.

We offer:

  • Opportunity to be part of something big as we set out to change the way the planet looks at sustainable, plant-based alternatives.
  • A supportive and collaborative environment.
  • Loads of room for growth and career development – with the opportunity to further shape your role as our company grows.
  • Work alongside some of the world’s leading science, food technology, fermentation and synthetic biology organisations and innovators.
  • The potential to participate in the Nourish Employee Share Option Plan.
  • Flexible work.
  • Generous relocation budget.

**Maybe this role is not for you if:

  • You need a lot of direction or a roadmap to start a project.
  • Prefer to have a role with specific focus – working in a fast-paced startup you may need to wear many hats and get your hands dirty with tasks and projects outside of the traditional scope of this role.
